Today I left work a bit on the early side. Tomorrow I plan on leaving at noon. Anyway, back to today.
I got home and relaxed, etc. At 5 I decided to go make up my Buck a Block BOM blocks. You get 2 blocks (one positive, one negative) per kit and I buy 2 kits per month. So I had 4 blocks to make. I got that done about 6.15 and I also realized I had NO leaders or enders ready and I am now officially dependent on them. I swore I would never....never mind.
So I went upstairs and started dinner. I decided at 7 that I would go out and garden and told everyone. I did go out at 7. The sun was blocked and the wind was really blowing, but it was not as hot as it could have been. Renee and I worked on weeding while Ted worked on edging. After about 15 minutes Renee bailed on us. I continued to weed out the square foot bed. The tomatoes were transplanted (not all of my transplants from the week before made it), and the weeds are gone. I added plant food to the bed and Ted dumped in a 2 cubic foot bag of garden soil in there. I raked it all up, leveled it out and called it a day.
So right now we have the tomato bed on the south side of the deck, 2 window boxes off the south deck railing which hold lettuce, 1 pot of mesclun lettuce, 1 pot of lemon verbena and basil, 1 pot of thyme and basil, 1 pot of spearmint, and a square foot bed ready to go.
So this weekend, I will see if there are any onion sets at Home Depot and plant my bell peppers and kale and sow some seeds.
I also decided on a quilty note (since this is a retreat weekend) that I am going to allow myself a mini-challenge of starting a new quilt while I work on my UFOs, which are all in a low point for me. I will start the Weed Whacker quilt by Bonnie Hunter. This is one of my pay it forward 2012 quilts and I have already set aside the fabrics. So I guess my MAYDAY call is for my mojo.
